    Like many of you I disliked Megatron being shorter than my FE Optimus. So I experimented and realized an incredibly easy way to give him more height.

    Simple have Megatron stand on his toes... He is still stable and looks fine like this and most importantly is now taller than Optimus.

    Awesome. How does it look next to the RID version?

    Sorry, I don't own the PRID Optimus, nor do I intend to. :) 

    Since the PRID Optimus is shorter than FE Optimus, I imagine the difference in height will look even larger.

    He;s the same height as the PRID Prime when he's NOT standing on his toes, so he fits with either

    Is he still stable while posing?

    Yup. Obviously he's not as stable but I would say he is stable enough. He's not the most unstable figure I have like this. He is more stable than say FE Starscream.

    so all you did was put him on his toes? to me that seems more like a "hovering" type pose rather than an actual height increase. Still, its not a bad idea.

    Maybe not a bad idea, but it's not a custom, so here we are in Toy Discussion!

    Should I point put that I also painted Optimus grill silver and that it looks fantastic?


    On the subject of where I posted this, I figured the Radicon forum was the best choice. But I suppose this isn't the wrong forum either.

    I figured u could do that with him. Im definitely going to do that to my PRID Megatron when I get him, but it does make him look like hes on his tipi-toes like a ballerina :lol

    It looks too much like he's hovering. I'll take my short Megatron.

    Customs is for posting a thread in which something has been permanently altered (such as painting a figure, or kitbashing). If you're not doing that, but have something cool to share about a toy, then Toy Discussion is the forum for you :)

    No offense to anyone, but I immediately thought.....

    Megatron: Ballerina edition.

    *edit*....someone beat me to it :tongue:

    Though I agree Megatron is taller by standing him on his toes,...he's standing on his toes.

    I gotta disagree that he looks fine like that.

    Yea I had done this too for a bit but it started to bug me looking at his toes so I lowered it a little bit. But this will work better if you display other characters in front of him.

    Nice idea but he looks like he's trying a bit too hard to be taller than Optimus, as if to say "I am TOO taller than you!"

    I agree.

    Now, if someone can make some foot additions the collapsed feet can plug into...
